Associate Professor Hiroshi Shimizu (Institute of Innovation Research) Receives Nikkei Economic Book Award



Associate Professor of Hitotsubashi University Institute of Innovation Research, Hiroshi Shimizu, has received the 59th Nikkei Economic Book Award, co-organized by Nikkei Inc. and the Japan Center for Economic Research. Every year this award is offered to outstanding books that have been published in the past year in the fields of economics, management and accounting.

Professor Shimizu’s book, titled General Purpose Technology no Innovation (Innovations in General Purpose Technology), published by Yuhikaku, in March 2016, explores how the existence or absence of an entrepreneurial strategic choice for spin-outs influences the patterns of subsequent technological development by exploring the technological development of laser diodes in the US and Japan. It was highly commended for the award.
